Comments: Hi, I am looking for any one who may have information on my dad's involvement in the Korean war campaign.He passed away 26years ago so I never had the chance as a young man to speak to him about this.
He enlisted June 1951 at Shrewsbury for the Royal Welch Fusiliers and transferred to the reserves in 1956.
I believe he saw action but as most service personnel are, he never spoke to me about this.
I have his service record books and medals but as you can appreciate the books are not that detailed, so it's more information that I would like and its a nightmare just trying to Google this stuff. Hope some one can help me.
Paul Thomas.

Service or Relationship: Army Veteran - Korea

Comments: I am so pleased that the veterans, those Americans lost in battle are still
remembered, in Great Britain the war is forgotten, all the lives lost are not
known, my friends are not known, they gave their all, most of them National
Serviceman,I in the twighlight years of my life have many thoughts, indeed I am
haunted by the past, was it worth it, I fought for a future, I now look around me
and I feel so sad, the values are not there, to a certain extent the love of
family is extinct, I would rather my old time culture, the values of my parent,
to what is happening today, we fought my friends, all of us for what we thought
was good and right, it seems now we are the outcastes in many ways, my friends
that were lost and died died in the Korean War would feel so dissapointed in
humanity. never forget my friends, most people in this country (Britain) believe
in silence, for whatever reasons, I hold the view that we should speak and inform
people so that they may not forget, I walk the streets of my Valley village and I
think, 'they know nothing' and they will never learn the lessons, and up to now I
know that they could not care less, but we fought my friends for what was right,
and in this we can rest in peace.
God Bless you all and keep you safe.
